minister. they realize they cannot fulfil, have not been able to yet, many of the pledges they made during the election. the atmosphere is, on the surface at least, a little bit better. >> considering all the problems in the eurozone right now, can germany and france really hold europe together? >> the relations between the two countries are really not at their best, and i am share of the next e. summit where they will be discussing the budget over the next few years, there are very different priorities -- at the next eu summit. i think there will be a lot of tension. in the past, at least, leaders of both countries have realized france and germany have to stand together if they want to advance the european project, and i think that current leaders in both countries are no exception. i think it is very difficult to imagine that they will not reach a compromise for the sake of your's future. >> thank you very much.
